The dust raised by what many have now described as ‘Murder in the Church’ following the killing of a Christian at the Presbyterian Church Ntanfoang in Bali Nyonga is yet to settle.
At a time when one thought tension was dying down, an audio message has emerged from Bali causing tension in that part of the restive Northern West Region of Cameroon.
In the voice clip, the speaker said he was speaking on behalf of self-styled Amba General Grand Pa.
He said “The PCC Moderator lied that he doesn’t know who killed Ma Grace Numvi. The pastor, Rev. Voma Simon Montoh who was shot in the arm says he too is not in the know as to who shot him and Grace. Christians say, the know those behind the shootings and that, it was the Cameroon military,” the voice said.
The voice added that, “the church is supposed to be the epitome of Justice and Truth but has been proven otherwise by the leaders who have resorted to lies telling. Because of this, we have decided to ban the activities of the Presbyterian Church in Bali until the Moderator and Pastor Numvi Simon resign. Christians can go to other churches, not the PCC.”
Sunday morning, reports say, no one was seen around Presbyterian Churches in Bali Nyonga.
This is to indicate that, the message has been taken seriously.
Worthy of note is the fact that days after the shootings at the church premises that led to the death of Grace Numvi, the PCC reacted.
“Rev. Voma Simon Montoh was on duty ministering to the Christians in Church when suddenly there was a loud explosion outside close to the Church House, followed by random gun shots. It was in the course of this reckless shooting we learnt that bullets were rained on the Church house injuring the Rev. Voma Simon Montoh on the arm and killing a female Christian of the PCC by name Grace Titalabit instantly in Church,” the Moderator stated
“We therefore condemn in strongest terms this unnecessary and inhuman treatment meted on God’s children by those who are supposed to protect them,” an excerpt from the communuque from the PCC read.
With the recent ban on the activities of the PCC in the entire Bali Nyonga, there are fears that, this will affect back to school negatively given that, the PCC has schools that many thought will go functional this academic year.
